Hey Guys!,

 Im a final year student in England studying animal science and am doing my dissertation project on horses and looking at symmetry in the spinal region.

If anyone out there has any info at all to why horses are symmetrical/asymmetrical and why they have a preferred canter lead etc or any other relevant information i would really appreciate it.

Many Thanks!!

You seem to have inadvertently found perhaps the best place on the internet to answer this question. Check out http://www.equinestudies.org/knowledge_base/woody.html

That should basically explain it as well as how it can be corrected. For your own interest you may enjoy other articles in the knowledge base as well.
